Judging Time: Jul 27 - Aug 2
Judges take considerations on the submitted charts. Kuromaku calculates rankings for each participant.
Participants' charts are uploaded to the server anonymously with number markings. If any participant wants to speak for his/her chart, he/she should do a proxy statement: send Kuromaku the text by the original submission method up to 280 letters (bytes). You can only do it twice during each match of the competition.
During the quest match, we will prepare stable charts of lower difficulties for plays.

In quest match, each judge gives each participant a score of 1-5. Participants with a total score of ≥14 are admitted to the formal group in the exhibition match. This criterion will be lowered when less than 40% of the participants are admitted.
In exhibition match, each judge gives each participant a score of maximum 10. For each participant, the score from all judges are summed, then reduced by half of the highest score and a half of the lowest score. The sum-reduced score will be used for the ranking.
The Kuromaku also gives scores to the participants. If any judge joined the match, the score for the judge is replaced: if the judge gets rank X according to Kuromaku's score, the judge gets a score of rank X among his/her scores to other participants.
